Hi There

Is there a way to get an array with the values of a variable width stroke to use it on a script?

Thanks in advanced

That could get really complicated very fast and not very accurate , At least for my purpose.

imagine getting the width of all the stroke on something like the image attached.

 

Thanks

How was this pattern created, if I may ask?  Was this done by hand or with scripting?

It was done by hand on an iPad pro with an apple pen in Adobe Draw. But you could do exactly the same in illustrator with a Wacom tablet.

holy smokes! yeah I see, it wouldn't work for that kind of file. But even if you could have access to the UI Point Editor data, you file is way to complicated. 

 

try saving as svg, the width profile is probably expanded at export time.

the simple line I posted above exports as

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

But that still does not give me a line with width values, you just get filled in shapes:-(
